Modern advancement in science and technology has altered the way we detect, treat and prevent different diseases in all aspects of human life. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is chronic progressive autoimmune disease in which body’s immune system has role to protect the health by attacking foreign bacteria but the virus mistakenly attacking the joints as a result thickened synovium, pannus formation, & destruction of bone, cartilage occurs. Researchers are still researching but are unable to know the exact reason for the disease. Although, it is believed that genes and environmental factors play an important role in the development of RA. In this review the pathophysiology, predictors and factors involved in pathogenesis of RA have been investigated. The conventional drug therapeutic agents and emerging novel drug delivery system (NDDS) like nanoparticles, dendrimers, micelles, microspheres, liposomes and so on are discussed, as these are the tools which show promising effect in overcoming the limitations associated with conventional drug delivery systems. Although several NDDS have been used for various purposes, liposomes have been focused and found to have its potential applications in RA diagnosis and therapy. In addition, the therapeutic effectiveness, and challenges for RA by using these novel drug delivery systems have been reviewed along with its future perspectives.
